The Huon pine is Australia’s oldest living tree and is one of the oldest living organisms on earth.
Individuals have been known to reach an age of 3,000 years. Fossil records from a tree found
in a boggy area in the south west of Tasmania were dated at 3,462 years! (Carder A., 1995). Only
the bristle-cone pine of North America exceeds it in age.
